Keylor Navas was about to double his current salary when Real Madrid and manchester United's agreement over David De Gea collapsed. The Costa Rican was reportedly very satisfied with his new deal and while he is happy to stay in Madrid he also wants to match the contract he was offered by United, according to several pieces from Spain.

Navas has been training under Benítez as he was cleared by the Costa Rican national team. Benítez reportedly talked with him to let him know that he has all the coaching staff's trust. Navas is determined to prove that Real Madrid never needed to make a move for De Gea and wants to succeed as a Real Madrid player, but he also has the right to ask some compensation from Real Madrid.

In any case, Navas will most likely be the starting goalkeeper this season as he has been Benítez's chosen one ever since the opener against Gijón.
